Charity information


We support children living with disabilities in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

We run 6 brace-crafting workshops around the DRC which provide free surgery, orthopaedic equipment and rehabilitation for as many disabled Congolese youths as possible.

We also provide primary and secondary education for beneficiaries, ensuring they have access to the same education as their able-bodied peers while helping to destigmatise disability within their communities.
